Manny’s birthday book – July 31

July 31, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  July 31 – Annie Macelli Swannell

Flowers yellow, leaves all green,

Here’s a puffy ball between,

The children blow those balls away,

“They’re clocks, and tell the time,” they say.

There are entries for a number of Swannell’s in the WA birth index, but no Ann, Anne or Annie.  There are marriages for the same bunch of Swannells, but no Annie.  There are no Ann’s or Annies in the death index either.

I have no idea who the Annie Swannell in Manny’s birthday book is.

If you think you know who she is, or if you are one of her descendants, please comment and let me know.
